D-8 is an inter-governmental organisation for development cooperation comprising Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Turkey, which was founded in 1997.

In a statement on Friday, Isiaka Imam, secretary-general of D-8, said the idea was to mainstream youth empowerment in its development agenda.

“I am happy that the D-8 established the youth council. It has been a long time coming since it was designed in 2021,” Imam said.
